It is a race for time in the morning as you get ready for the day. The morning routine seems like another chore and we try to find ways to cut corners. It may seem more expedient to wash your face in the shower with that bar of soap that sits on the ledge, but this seeming time saver is a harsh decision. It is important to get up that one minute earlier to wash your face with the appropriate cleanser and avoid the bar soap consequences.
Our facial skin has an exact PH level that keeps the moisture content and acidity in balance. Using the correct cleanser will keep your skin moisturized without overdoing the moisture and causing break-outs. It is important to keep the face clean and prevent bacteria build up, but you don’t want to strip the skin of its natural moisture content. This will cause premature aging and wrinkles.
Bar soaps are made for getting rid of the grease and grime of the day and contain harsh chemicals that strip the skin. Quite often we need to apply hand lotion after using these soaps because they are drying. Just think of what this will do to the delicate PH of the face.
Another thing to note is that just as the soap scum builds up in your sink and shower, this is the same film that will be placed onto your face if you use that bar of soap. This will clog pores and cause break-outs and skin blemishes.
There are several face specific cleansers for all types of skin. We personally recommend Sanitas Skin Care or Image Clinical Skin Care Products. It is important to find the right one for you. Talk with us to find out what to use for your skin type and you will be on your way to having happy skin that you feel good in. Your morning routine will be enjoyable as you expose your natural beauty.
